14-track collection features collaborations with Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, DOE, Nate Diaz
Grammy Award-winning group Israel & New Breed recently announced the release of a new live album, “Worship Anywhere,” which was recorded at Camp NewBreed in Nassau, and is available Oct. 7. The 14-track project features spirited collaborations with Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, DOE and Nate Diaz. It’s all led by six-times-Grammy-winning artist, songwriter and producer Israel Houghton.
In anticipation, the group is offering fans two instant-grat tracks, “New Breed Anthem” and “Miracles, Signs and Wonders.”
A press release said, “The songs offer both a joyful, stomp-clap singalong that sets the tone for the album, as well as a dynamic, feel-good groove. With songs such as ‘Wrong About You’ and the album’s title track – which feature driving acoustic guitars, heart-thumping rhythm sections and a breathtaking choir – or ‘Campfire Coritos,’ which is sung entirely in Spanish – ‘Worship Anywhere’ is an uplifting experience with something for everybody that is sure to have people joyfully jumping out of their seats.”
Houghton is a singer-songwriter, band leader and innovator whose 20-year career with the musical collective New Breed has taken him around the world, growing and adapting in surprising ways over a transformative stretch of music and cultural history. Since the release of his first studio album in 1997, Houghton has looked to the live performance format as a means to blur the lines between band, family and audience, including 2004’s “Live From Another Level” and 2005’s “Alive in South Africa” – the latter of which won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Gospel Album. Houghton would later take home three awards for Best Pop / Contemporary Gospel Album and eventually a Best Gospel Album award for 2015’s “Covered: Alive In Asia.”
He recently welcomed his first child with wife Bailon-Houghton, baby Ever James.
